  1. Hello, I have several Saitek Pro Flight Switch (and other) Panels that work perfectly in FSX, yet I cannot seem to get them to work correctly in X-Plane. I have installed the Saitek plug-in, but it seems that it will make it so that everything has to be done through the Saitek panels and it locks out the switches in the virtual cockpit. With FSX, if I want to turn the BAT switch on within the virtual cockpit, I'm free to do that, even with the Saitek panel active. I can still start the aircraft within the virtual cockpit and use the Saitek panel gear lever to raise the landing gear, or the radio panel to set the radios. With X-Plane, if I have the Saitek plug-in and panels active, all of the BAT switches will be locked inside the virtual cockpit, so that I cannot follow the normal procedure for starting the aircraft, like the FJS 727. I am limited to just using the switch panel and twisting the start knob on it, to start the aircraft (very unrealistic). I cannot flip the BAT switches on within the virtual cockpit, but have to use the switch panel. It's hard to explain, but the Saitek panels will not seem to work in X-Plane, with the same functionality that they do in FSX. Has anyone had this experience and found a way to work around it? I would appreciate any help. I bought the Volair Sim Cockpit and have it set up with all of my Saitek panels, but can't seem to use them in X-Plane and I am leaning toward getting away from FSX, so I really want to get my Saitek panels working correctly. Thank you, Bob
  2. I have been content with saitek drivers till now.. they have worked for me but I notice that when I switch the radio panel from com1 to com2 the BIP tiles dont switch to reflect that (same with Nav1 and Nav2). The BIP only responds to the Com and Nav buttons in the 2D and 3D cockpit (Baron 58 and variations) Does anyone who has SPAD running their panels have the same issue or does SPAD enable the BIP to interract with the radio panel settings.
  3. I notice with Windows 8.1 that my Saitek flight panels will turn on and off when playing other PC games. Is there anyway I can prevent this from happening. I am using SPAD and never noticed them come on during PC games other than FSX. Also I have to start and restart SPAD several times to get the numeral panel to light on the multi-panel. All the controls will work but the numeral screen will not light. Thanks
